Peter Tabori (born 1940) is a British architect, who was born in Hungary and came to Britain in 1956.[1]

After the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 Tabori was imprisoned by the Russians for six months, before being released and joining his family who had escaped to England.[1] He trained with Cecil Epril and in 1958 attended Regent Street Polytechnic (now the University of Westminster). He studied under Richard Rogers before working for Erno Goldfinger, Denys Lasdun and others, eventually working under Sydney Cook, borough architect of Camden, London.[1] In Camden he designed estates at Highgate New Town (1977), Mill Lane/Solent Road (1978) and Polygon Road/Oakshott Court (1976)

Cook's group at Camden, which also included Neave Brown (Alexandra Road Estate, Grade II* 1993) and Gordon Benson & Alan Forsyth (Branch Hill), achieved new estates while increasing green space.[2]
